Tea with breakfast. Pretty darn good for a bagged tea.

I had a small sample of this that I took to my tea and chinese food date with my best friend. We both enjoyed the heck out of it. It was smooth and sweet without being too chocolaty. Definitely considering buying some once I make room in my stash.

I had to try this. And I’m not unimpressed. Having been a little spoiled by starting with Matchachino before trying the real thing, I wasn’t expecting to like it. I have a lot of trouble with unflavored matcha at this point, but hopefully that will change as I adjust to the flavor. This one though, is very good I’m happy to say. Its easy to drink as well.

That said I have a sample of the eggnog one (I don’t like eggnog even slightly but I was curious and now I’m too nervous to try it). Anyone wanna swap it for a sample of another matcha that they might have?

This is one I got in a trade and while I am just starting to enjoy ginger anything, this is definitely drinkable. Flavor is there but not overwhelming. I still enjoy the heck out of, I might even buy some if he remixes some.

This surprised me with how good it was. I made a whole pot so what I had left was gone. I might consider getting more if I can find it, but I’m not chasing down more Roobios when its such an iffy drinker for me.

drank Winter Nog by Della Terra Teas

This tea smells phenomenal. It was in my Black Friday Surprise Seasonal Box and I was leery at first. Egg nog is one of a handful of foods that I just CAN’T stand. I’m usually really good about not being picky with what I eat, but when I hate something I hate it.

When I opened the package of this I was immeditely releived that it didn’t smell like anything I don’t like about egg nog. It brewed up super dark and pretty, and hubby kept mentioning how he smelled blueberry when he drank it.

I’ve said before that Roobios is a tea that can go a bit ‘mulchy’ for me. And this one manages to get past it. Its lovely and smooth to drink, with something a bit fruity to the flavor. I’ll definitly finish the ounce that I have, but I doubt I’ll order more.

The directions on this say to make it in 16oz of water. I made it in 32 and its bearably sweet. That should tell you something. But its still delicious. If I thought the rock sugar was worth buying, I’d buy a ton of the stuff. But I really don’t sweeten my tea much. If I’m in the mood for sweet I drink something from Della Terra with sprinkles or something in it. This is one of the teas that started me down my path into tea-dom so I can’t hate it no matter how much they oversugar it.

I really don’t understand why they insist on putting rock sugar in their samples. Especially with teas like this one which is sweet to begin with and really doesn’t need to be sweetened.

Dear husband had the idea of putting this in a steeper and infusing some mead with it, and it is phenomenal. Just silly good. I encourage anyone who likes a nice glass of mead to get an unflavored one and put some in there. It is one of the best things I’ve ever drank.

Pineapple flavoured mead? That sounds fabulous!

I’m using Bea’s Mead because its cheap and easy to drink honestly, but its even better with that pineapple. Yum yum yum.

This tea was something I wanted to try the instant I heard it existed. The smell out of the bag is brilliant, but I’m getting no cherry. Once brewed the color is a dark brown. Flavorwise I’m really not getting the cakey-ness others have mentioned. I get the pinapple and a bit of the cherry though. Both of which I’m nothing but happy about. All and all I’m happy I got this because its lovely! I might need to go heavier on the leaves to get more of that cakey flavor, but goodness am I happy either way.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec
